    Boss-eyed headlights

    Been meaning to ask for 3 weeks now!

    Since my cambelt etc was done, my headlights have been all over the shop, not really having time to go back to the dealer, what tools and how do I adjust the lights back to somewhere near the correct position?

    first off get them aligned with the wings and bonnet etc,then sit in front of a wall to level them the same. I like to then find a deserted industrial estate to set mine,and when done re check against the wall to ensure they both the same

    If your removing the lights a good tip is to put a vertical and horizontal piece of masking tape, in the shape of a cross, on the indicator side of the lights running onto the wing. Then just cut the tape at the edge of the light when you remove the lights. When you come to replace the lights just make sure the tape lines up in a straight line in both planes and you have 2 axis of alignment already sorted.

    Cheers, my mate is a car stripper / fitter, may get him to re do the lining up with the panel gaps, that should be all it is.
    Good tip on the masking tape too. Cheers guys.
